Sweden’s DNKL first popped on the scene and turned heads with their debut Wolfhour EP released last year. After taking some time to work in the studio, the trio returns with a new single called “Otherside.” Tweaked for their live performance, the track became a fan favorite. It certainly shows the band growing into their “noir-pop” sound. I think it’s their strongest track to date.
Amidst the swirling vocal melodies and lush synths, DNKL constructs this rich and flowing electronic soundscape that you can still dance to. The gazing and trance style comes off beautifully. “Otherside” is being released on Different Recordings, who has served as the home for tracks from artists like Claptone and Shadow Child.
